started diving many moons ago…when I was 18 years old. Since then it is only really in the last 4 years that I have had the time and ability to take up this sport in earnest. Joining my Totnes BSAC club I have loved exploring the Devonshire and Cornish coast with my dive buddies. I have never been disappointed with British diving. It might be inconsistent thanks to UK weather and issues with visibility and plankton blooms but I love it all the same. It always provides interesting scenes, new species that I haven’t seen before and a great community to share your experiences with.
It was always a fun day when he came down to us at O'Three, his enthusiasm for diving and new products to play with was unending. In his role as Diver Magazine’s Technical Editor he was a fantastic O'Three advocate and loved being a test pilot for anything new we had in development, he will be sorely missed by us and the whole community.
When diving on wrecks, can you appreciate what that pile of broken & twisted metal actually is?
Some wrecks remain fairly well held together and are instantly recognisable for what they are but many others represent a real challenge. I’m sure experienced divers will empathise when I describe a scenario where different divers have opposing views on what you had all just swum over, were you really on the same dive?
